A BLACK-HEADED GROSBEAK has been coming to a feeder in north Pensacola since 20 Dec. The identity was confirmed today by Bill and Greta Bremser.
The bird is frequenting the feeder of Brenda Francisco, 8867 Shoal Creek Ct., Pensacola, FL 32514
She works full time, but is willing to have visiting birders try for the bird. You may come along the fenceline, or enter her backyard and sit quietly on the patio 'though it will take the birds a long time to get used to your presence and come back to feed, she said.
DIRECTIONS:
In Pensacola go north on Davis Highway past University Mall and just north of West Florida Hospital. Turn left into the Shoal Creek subdivision and take the first left which is a cul-de-sac. Her home is the middle unit of the three-unit condo that is at the very middle end of the cul-de-sac. The unit on the right (as you face the home) is vacant and you can go in that back yard. The backyard is tiny and backed with a small wooded patch behind where the bird hangs out. The homeowner has cats that are friendly and apparently don't bother the birds.
If you do go to try and see the Grosbeak, please be sure to close any gates and be respectful of neighbors.
It would be appreciated if you would keep us informed so that we can keep tabs on the dates of its stay here.

PACIFIC LOON was near the west end of the Lillian Bridge (US 98) yesterday (28th).
LARK SPARROW and CLAY-COLORED SPARROWS were still present at Ft. Pickens yesterday.
